International Talent Internship Scheme

The International Talent Internship Scheme provides you with the opportunity to achieve paid short-term work experience in the UK. If you’re an international student, this is an exciting opportunity to build your skills and experience in a professional work environment.

If you're trying to decide if the Scheme could be for you, why not have a look at our infopage on Infohub (login required) which includes a student case study video and other information.

2020 Internship Scheme

In line with the latest advice from the UK Government and the prevention of Covid-19, we’re moving our Careers and Enterprise provision online and staff will be working remotely. This means we will need to postpone and review our internship schemes.

We hope to be able to offer a revised internship scheme by the end of April and all eligible students will be contacted in due course.

Please refer to our Careers and Enterprise web pages for help and resources.

Student feedback

The scheme has enabled many international students to take on career-building short-term internships with local companies.
